This is going to be a great product :)


how do I do the -1 rep thing?


That's why Admins removed the -1 rep button.


Thats not the point. Yanike had a -2 rating for his post in this thread. How is that possible?

Because some people are 1337. And can still give negative reps.

wow I thought yanike was sarcastic or is he disguised as a troll?

But imagine, 4 duct taped ipod touchs cost $1199.99 + $1.00 for duct tape
while ipad cost $499.99! you save 700$!

here are the slo-mo secrets of the newest ipad commercial!


This is more like a comedy show than an ad :D

Because it's more than just an iPhone/iPod. It actually has meaning and more advantages over both and even some netbooks for what it's built for. I think it's gonna be an excellent product. You don't have to buy it if you don't like it. You have your choices out there.

I agree with Yanike. While everyone is entitled to their own opinion, I really don't think arguing over it is worth it.
I'm getting it because-
  • Selling my Zune HD. I would by a $400 iPod Touch, so why not spend another $100 on something that can do so much more?
  • iWork. Can't freaking wait.
  • I've always been a fan of the tablet form factor. It just seems so natural :) .

iWork is what I'm excited about. Presentations and more will be some much easier and fun.
Imagine if the Mac development team for Microsoft Office brought it to tablet as well :D I'm sure DocsToGo is already developing something for this. This is a true new Gold Rush.

I just seriously thought of something cool and useful for this. I wonder if you can patent an app for the iPad.
